               BODY OF MAN FOUND IN REAR SEAT OF CAR

             Akron detectives say robbery could be a motive in the slaying of a 40- year-old cook whose body was found at about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, in the rear seat of his car on the city's near north side.

             Police and investigators from the Summit County coroner's office are calling the death of William Morris of Jeanette Avenue a homicide.

             Prior to being put in the car, authorities believe, the man was beaten with a blunt instrument and his body dragged.

             "It is a homicide and it is under investigation," said coroner's investigator Joseph Orlando.

             Lt. John Lower said Morris, a cook at Mijo's "House of Paprikash” at the corner of Exchange and Main streets, was last seen at about 8 p.m. Tuesday at a downtown bar where he had cashed his paycheck.  Police declined to identify the bar.

             Lower said the victim's family had last seen him Tuedsay morning when he left for work.  He said Morris' wallet was not found at the scene and indicated that "robbery could be the motive, but we are not sure."

             An Akron policeman investigating a parking violation discovered the body in the rear seat of Morris' 1974 AMC at about 1:30 p.m.  The car was parked on Bass Avenue, which runs between Cuyahoga Street and Glenwood Avenue.
